Thomaz

Here you can jump from planet to planet to find out about his different worlds, or just float around in his sphere to get to know what makes him breathe and be swept away to to a faraway inner nearby.


Experience darkness with a glimpse of light
and grave seriousness with gallows humour portrayed through Thomaz dark, vibrating voice.

”I have always been curious of what musicians would do if I gave them free hands to play whatever they wanted to recordings of me reading poems I have written throughout my life, from my teenage years to middle age. Now as this idea finally came to life, I am really amazed at the many different soundscapes that talented people have used their creativity to create to my thoughts and feelings. I am humble, thankful and in hope everybodys work will reach out and touch listeners”.
 

This self-released double CD is limited to 150 copies and can only be gotten here!.

PHOTO EXHIBITION AT ÖLANDS MUSEUM in Himmelsberga
SKINHEADS – FROM JAMAICA TO ÖLAND

 

Skinhead culture is among the worlds largest – and most misunderstood – subcultures.
The culture grew out of Jamaican and British roots and skinheads all around the world have after hard work pulled on their boots to dance to reggae, punk, soul and most of all SKA – ”black” music. Despite this, the culture is painted black – still to this day – by prejudiced media as something completely different from what it truly is: one of the most multicultural movements of our times.
I have for many years portrayed friends within skinhead culture with my simple camera. With my photos, I want to put light on those persons to show how diverse skinhead culture is and to – with love for what the culture truly stands for – repaint the unfair picture that media is still painting of it.
OPEN: 11:00-16:00 every Thursday-Sunday between April 10th and May 3rd 2020 at Ölands Museum in Himmelsberga, Öland.
This is an act of love from me, for a culture that means a lot to my life
Enter ”will attend” at following link to see a daily live broadcast from the exhibition.
STAY SHARP!

TODAY, November 4th 2016, my debut solo album “If I Ever Die” turns 10 years!

10 years ago it was premiered at the night club GS2H in Göteborg, Sweden, where I performed some of the songs together with my killer girls, Kitty and Charlotta.
I have very fond memories of the evening, and am deeply thankful to anyone who ever bought a record, attended a gig or shared a video to support my creativity!

I would like to thank everybody in any way involved in this record: Johnny Rosengren, Simon Bloomfield, Erik Cronqvist, Olof Rewhus, Anna Idh, Jakob Åberg, Patrik Karlsson, Kristian Anttila, Lina Formare, Kitty Molin, Dani Cohen, Samir Dounas, Pontus Silveby, Robert Engstrand, Jennifer Rush, Toni Childs, Per Andréasson, Anders Dannvik, Lena Hegerfors, Kenth Bergman, David Ricketts.

A special thanks goes out to my friend Kevin Williams, who is no longer with us, who were the one introducing me to some of you others, and whose voice can be heard on “So Sorry, I Said”. He always supported me, and I miss him very much.

You are all part of this creation, which has given me so much and taken me so many places. I am so thankful – and send you all love from the deepest of my heart.

Tonight and over the coming week, I will share stories, memories, videos and pictures to celebrate. Even a few demos!

I hereby invite you all to share the celebration by visiting my Facebook fan-page.

Ni är alla mina stjärnor på himmelen!

You are all my stars in heaven!

JULY 2016:

DONATION FOR THE ORLANDO MASSACRE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES
I felt very affected by the horrible attack in Orlando (USA) some time ago. As a queer man, this was something that ”shook my genes” as a member of the lgbt-family.

Originally, I wanted to donate mine and Kristian Anttila​s love duet ”Death do us part” in support of the victims and their families – a song about a love between two men so strong that it survives on ”the other side” – but have this time chosen to instead donate all my proceeds from the album the song is featured on.

If you purchase my album ”Nobody´s Child” via the link below, you will get:
1) a personally signed CD,
2) a free postcard that cannot be gotten anywhere else – and
3) all my proceeds will go directly to the official support fund for this cause: One Orlando (all info about them can be found at  the One Orlando homepage).

Sitting in my (so far) quite safe corner of the world, my hope is to this way be able to reach out and in a little way help the surviving victims, and the families of the people who didnt survive.
I truly thank you for your support from the deepest of my heart.
Let us help together and show them that we care!

World aids day music donation

Today is World Aids Day, and I am donating my song ”My love is going to die” in support of Noaks Ark (a Swedish hiv/aids-organization).

I have many friends who live with hiv – so do many of us. There is still a stigma about HIV that stops people from telling others about that they have it, or even getting tested. Despite what many seem to think, today more people than ever are infected by hiv, and most people with hiv are and have always been heterosexuals.

I have lived with a partner who lives with hiv. He is fortunately still alive – but not all are that lucky. I have lost friends to this disease. Infected people react differently on the treatments, or not at all.

To support Noaks Ark is my way of honouring the friends I have lost, and at the same time both help friends living with the infection and to help spreading awareness and knowledge.

I composed ”My love is going to die” in 1992. It tells the story of how a lover got to know that his partner had hiv, and he has just been to his partners funeral when he makes a revelation by singing this song. It was recorded live with Robert Engstrand at the piano.

All you need to do to donate and get the song is to follow these two easy steps:

1. Click here to donate any amount of your own choice (the full proceeds will go to Noaks Ark):




2. Click HERE to download the THOMAZ song ”My love is going to die”!

Your support is much appreciated.

Brand new song released!

25/6 2014: I have contributed with a song to the CD ”Har du cancer?” (Do you have cancer?), with exclusive tracks by Swedish and Danish artists. All proceeds from this LIMITED EDITION album will go to Cancerfonden (The Swedish Cancer foundation).

My contribution is my composition ”YOU DON’T CARE THAT IT HURTS”, where I am accompanied by the talented musician Mattias Lennartsson. It is possibly the poppiest and catchiest song I have released so far!

The record can be bought worldwide only by writing a message to the Facebook page for it.

Both my mother and her father died of cancer. Some other relatives as well have fought cancer, and this spring my friend and collaborator Kevin Williams died in Leukemia at the age of 41.
We might still lose people along the way, but we need to keep searching for a cure, and help both the ones that battle with cancer and the people around them the best we can.
To buy this record is one of many ways to make a contribution to this good cause.

I am thankful for getting to contribute by being on the record, and I am thankful to everyone who supports it. As Kevin wrote on his profile before he died: Fuck cancer!

A new video!

5/5 2014: On this day, exactly 30 years after Maribelle performed this sad ballad for The Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest, Thomaz releases this video to his cover of her song from his ”Nobody’s Child” album – as a celebration!
-I have always loved this song since I heard it as a child and didn’t understand any Dutch, says Thomaz. I always remembered the melody and hummed it for years. I had the honour to meet Maribelle herself only a few weeks ago, and she said she really liked that I had covered her song. Once after a gig in Leiden, a man came up to me and said it was the first time he had heard someone sing this song like he really meant every word – quite a compliment as Dutch is not my first language!

Check out Thomaz’ ”Ik Hou Van Jou” below, filmed in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Update to the text below: Unfortunately my friend Kevin lost his battle against leukemia on April 17th. A memorial for him was held in Hagakyrkan in Göteborg, Sweden, May 2nd. All future proceeds for our song will from now on go to the aid of his family. Thankyou for all your support. The last thing I heard from Kevin was how much he appreciated everybody’s support. Thankyou fro the deepest of my heart/Thomaz.

My musical collaborator Kevin Williams is fighting a battle against leukemia, and to help him I am in collaboration with my record company (Thundering Refrigerator) pushing our song ”So Sorry, I Said”, where Kevin made the hellish background voices and on which our mutual friends are performing the music, to support his case.

The full profits from this song will go to help Kevins american mother to be able to stay by his side in Sweden, and to support the Swedish bone marrow transplant register, Tobiasregistret.
